Gosh...did I really NOT blog for so long?
Anyway, here is something I found very very interesting to read. It has everything I like about non-textbook style, street-smart exec style writing. In short, Ian Landsman opines that there are four rules that practical entrepreneuers should know and obey. His headings for them are:
1. Fragmented Market
2. Business Before Consumer
3. Clear and Simple Revenue Model
4. Dog Food
Go and read it all at:
Being an entrepreneur myself (not the software kind, though- not yet at least), and a decently successful one at that, I can assure you that Ian is spot on. I agree that he could have added a few more rules, some more important than the other, the crux of his discussion is that these four rules are the most neglected ones and that they hold good for the 'practical' entrepreneur rather than their 'visionary' counterparts.
